Let’s like… just… talk about other stuff for a while, yeah? I can only take this other stuff for so long. So let me share a few happy things.
The other day I went to the craft store and got some ribbon and beads and fabric and similar things. I’ve been determined to make some of my newer (and older, neglected) stuffies their own bandanas and name necklaces.
Here is Raisin, holding the haul and eagerly awaiting his own goodies to be made:
The fabric bundle was really cute:
One of the older stuffies who got pimped out is Frito. Frito has survived several purges and sat in my “donation” pile three times. I can never bear to let him go. After he survived the third purge, I decided it was time to make him a name necklace and dress him up:
Frito is actually a very funny and expressive Folkmanis puppet.
Churrasco also got a name necklace, finally:
And my new stuffed little t-rex, now named Gao, got a name necklace and a bandana that I made for him myself:
Beanie got kind of revamped. He gave up his massive rainbow bow for an oversized sweater, cute bandana and new ribbon:
Along with veteran Franklin, Beanie will be coming along with me on the upcoming New England trip.
It is indeed very rare for me to travel with two bears (a first) as well as Franklin’s first trip in many years. Franklin is basically retired these days. However, we will be going to the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory where Franklin was born –I cannot visit that place with anyone but Franklin.
And then of course there is Raisin. He’s very happy with his new getup:
Everyone will be getting hats soon. I got them from AliExpress so that will take a few weeks to arrive.
I have other stuffies who have gotten a bandana here or a ribbon there but these are the most significant changes.
I also made a little cover for my laminator which always gets dusty:
And I had a little snack afterwards with Genevieve:
And that’s it. Just some happy stuff to chase away some of these clouds. I’m gonna get some chores done and then work on another commission.
